I am sure the managers, Alan Pardew and Louis Van Gaal,
will be up this morning working on tactics over breakfast.
I wonder what they have for breakfast?
Louis Van Gaal will have a croissant.
I am guessing Alan Pardew is a big fry-up man.
If you want to find out more about the two managers, head to the
Kick About website, for our Who Said What?
First, we can see how Crystal Palace made it to the final.
Martin Kelly, an unlikely first goal-scorer.
Fraizer Campbell, with what is surely is the last kick of the game!
The ball flicked onto the back post and
Agonisingly out of reach for the goalkeeper.
And Connor Wickham has restored Crystal Palace's lead.
As you can see, the Eagles have been in fine form in the cup this year,
but can they go all the way and win the final?
We sent Ben to find some mini Palace pundits.
The Premier League action may be over,
here at Selhurst Park and preparations are already under way
But the home team, Crystal Palace, of course, already
have one more big appointment and it is not here, but at Wembley,
Luckily, there is a school just down the road from here,
so I am going to head there and get the low down from the kids as to
whether the Eagles can overcome Manchester United.
I also have a little treat in store for them, too.
That trip just took just five seconds.
Anyway, here we go. That may be a bit of a clue. Yes, we are finally
here! Enough of the talking, I think it is time for us to sing. We are
the famous Crystal Palace and we are off to Wembley.
26 years ago, we lost to Manchester United in the final, but this time
we're going to destroy them. I think we will destroy the Manchester
United defence. Connor woke Connor Wickham will use all his strength
and score the school. They believe the Eagles are going to sort out
Wembley. Thank you for these predictions. You
are backing your home team and quite rightly. Personally, I think
Manchester United may just be too strong. And you Gary's Big Ears saw.
No, thing to see some more clips of Wembley.
Great skill! We have seen no Crystal Palace made it through to the final,
to know we can turn our attention to Manchester United. Rooney In
stoppage time to surely win at foreign Manchester United and he
does. He vows Rooney. Magnificent goal
from Rooney! That is a very special streak.
A second goal for Manchester United, Mata.
The rather overplayed that. He lives Rashford. Absolutely brilliant.
Equally brilliant goal from an emerging Manchester United talent.
Martial, the chance to win it. He does. That will surely do it for
Manchester United. They are in the final. Martial Has been on fire
recently. I think he may be the main man today. Sorry, Crystal Palace
fans. The teams will make each other in 1990. 26 years later, Rob is a
proud father taking his son to the match this time. We have always had
been to the games together. We have the same seat in the stand. How are
you feeling about going to a merchant which they will be 90,000
people the. The build-up in 1990 was so huge. It was absolutely manic. It
was an amazing game. Crystal Palace took the lead. It was
a bit painful. But we equalised. Get in!
And then we went into the lead with Mark Hughes. But then he and rate
came on as a substitute for Crystal Palace and changed the game around.
My heart sank. A full claim, it was 2-2. Then, in extra time, he scored
again for Crystal Palace. I was disbelieving.
But then Mark Hughes came to the rescue and scored again. 3-3.
And what a match. Back then, they had to have a replay. Nowadays, it
would just go to a penalty shoot out. Manchester United won the
replay with this goal. The has been some amazing goals through this
competition, and not just from the two finalists.
Payet. Absolutely brilliant. That is quite fantastic.
She was great strength. That is a brilliant goal!
